It's easy to say that it was'nt as easy as it looked but the facts speak for themselves, he drove of into the distance and nobody was in the same race. It's still a bit early to say but I will say it anyway, he has his fourth consecutive championship in the bag. He has a 36 point lead and nobody else is either fast enough or consistent enough to close that up while he continues to amass good points. I know things can change but Redbull are not suddenly going to become uncompetitive and unreliable so it looks a forgone conclusion to me.

Vettel is dominant but you can't rule out Alonso, as long as Ferrari keep developing the car which they historically have done till the very end of the season.

Raikkonen is still in the hunt, but they need more consistency Lotus. Pirelli want to bring in the new ties which should make things very different but it looks like Lotus will resist them all the way, so who knows how the second part of the season will turnout.

In my opinion McLaren have been out of it from near the beginning of the season, and now Button has made this official.

@Objective,

Wherowid Alonso win the easy way this year? Was it in China when he qualified third and need to fight Kimi for the win? Or in Catalunya when the favorite is always the pole sitter to win but still Alonso fough to win that race even if he wasn't on the front row.

If you call that easy Mr. Objective then I don't know what to call Vettel's win in Canada. Alonso ended up second but he needed to race and pass 4 cars to be second. Fact is fact, Vettel is lucky with the car he has and have Newey on the back who made mediocre drivers win World Championship, no offense but its true. Respect respect, it just my opinion.

he was helped by having both Mercedes behind him, we have seen that the Mercs conserve tyre life for the first part of the stint allowing them to be quick at the end, and qualifying in the wet isnt such a handicap to red bull

Fernandabulous , you say he was helped by having both Mercedes behind him but at no point did I see Mercedes challenge him, and Alonso was not held up that much by Lewis. Alonso finished 14 seconds behind Vettel which is huge.

@ Cris Zarate Alonso won by over 10 seconds in China and almost 10 seconds at Catalunya and he could have won by more but he was managing the gap and not taking risks. To me any win by more than 3 or 4 seconds is a dominant win, but that's just me I guess.
